I am trying to put together a computer that I can play Warcraft and other MMO's with the settings up decently high. This is what I have so far. I have been reading about the Video Card GTX 465 and it is supposed to run hot so I want to make sure that I make a build that will keep it cool. I am only looking to spend up to 1200.00 I would like to keep it around there or lower.

Intel i5/i7 CPU : Intel Core i5 760 2.8GHz (Quad Core) 8000K

dont go for the gtx 465 go for the gtx 460, the gtx 460 is a newer card and it runs cool and its actually better than the 465, right now i would actually go with an amd build like an x4 955 as amds socket (am3) has a better upgrade path as it will support the bulldozer cpus that are coming out so you will have a better upgrade path and you would have enough money to upgrade the gpu to a 5850 or something, lga 1156 is intels socket and its dead they are not making any more cpus for that socket so you wont have an upgrade path, as for the hdd i would go for a samsung spinpoint f3 1tb hdd and i would get a psu made by a known brand like corsair, coolermaster, antec or OCZ, i would also look for a different case like an antec 3000 illusion or a coolermaster 690II or a coolermaster haf922 or an antec 900 or 902 depending on how much you want to spend on a case
